Applications are invited for the Tunku Abdul Rahman University Lectureship in Malay World Studies, which will be held as a Linked Post with a Fellowship of St Catharine's College. 'Malay World' encompasses the history, culture, literature and politics of areas in which the Malay language historically formed a lingua franca. Besides contemporary Malaysia, this region includes Indonesia, Singapore, and Brunei, with substantial and deep historical connections to Timor, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.

Appointees will be expected to engage in high-level research; take a leadership role in pursuing internal and external collaborative funding opportunities; publish internationally in their specialist field; supervise, teach and examine undergraduates; develop and deliver courses in their areas of expertise; supervise and examine MPhil and PhD work; and play an effective and collegial role in the life of the College and the faculty or department to which they are appointed. The successful candidate will have excellent communication, interpersonal and organisational skills, and possess (or be expected to develop), their own independent research portfolio of world-class research commensurate with the international reputation of the University.


The post is tenable from 1 September 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.
